Follow-up Comment #3, sr #3277 (project admin): Thanks! Adding the --numeric-ids option works (though it looks like all files will be replaced in the process). Anyway, this allows me to remove a pile of old, no longer needed release packages and to save a lot of space on the Gna! infrastructure.
I'd forgotten where that old conversation was, and for some reason could not find it using the search box. Somehow my synchronisation script had reverted to using the -avP options. It is still the group option -g that is problematic, so the following command which expands -avP but drops -g works quite well: $ rsync --delete -rlptoDvP --no-perms --rsh="ssh" --numeric-ids $PWD/ bug...@download.gna.org:/upload/relax/ Could recipe #119 <https://gna.org/cookbook/?func=detailitem&item_id=119> be updated to include this info? The example there uses the -avr options which will not always work. Cheers!
